Friday, August 23, 2013      15 comments

The best advice I got before buying my fitbit was to make sure to put it in the same place every night when taking it off my clothing. Which I've done - pretty much. The other day, I was talking to some grocery clerk acquaintances at the s... Read more

Thursday, August 22, 2013      14 comments

I have had cheap ones, expensive ones, mid-priced ones - nothing lasts. I take good care of my things, so it's not like I abuse them. Have a small place, but vacuum daily due to long-haired furry babies. BTW, I've tried Oreck and was underwhel... Read more
My Idea of a Spark "Hero"
Wednesday, August 21, 2013      21 comments

Sure, I admire those who've achieved the obvious. However, I shake my head in amazement and have done so during my 4.5 years on this site, at those who have chronic pain and/or terminal illnesses. They still get up and go go go as best they ca... Read more

Tuesday, August 20, 2013      15 comments

About a week ago, I blogged about derma rolling and how it was making my skin glow. Truthfully, there was no reason for me to start doing it other than I thought it would make my skin glow. I didn't need to do it, but I was intrigued. Since I... Read more

Monday, August 19, 2013      20 comments

SP is the only social website I'm on. In fact, I am the least electronically-attached person on the planet and rarely even use my cell phone. (which is an old one) Now, being SP is my one and only experience, I always felt that virtual friend... Read more

At first I thought the article written by Melissa Dahl was a joke, but soon realized it wasn't. I can't even wrap my mind around why anyone would do this. She wrote, "An Iowa woman recently discovered something worse than being overweigh... Read more

Renaming Cancer & Sugar in the News
Wednesday, August 14, 2013      10 comments

This morning I heard a short news clip on the radio. A cancer doc was talking about how there is no need to call all cancer cells cancer. That is, when docs see a patient, there are some cancer cells that they know will not progress. Yet, mos... Read more
